An SF Gateway eBook: bringing the classics to the future.
At first it was just another hoax, another UFO story, but the sightings went on increasing.
It couldn't be an alien, there had been so many false alarms, dramatic news-columnists had shouted 'wolf' so many times, that John Citizen shrugged his shoulders and said 'nuts' at the very mention of the word space-ship. Then one of them landed...

The enemy came from within! From the gigantic caverns at the earth's core.
